New Indonesia Immigration Regulations 12th January 2022 – No More COVID-19 Red List

On 12th January 2022, the Indonesian government updated their regulations for entry into Indonesia during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read the official regulations in Bahasa Indonesia here or an unofficial English translation here.

The key change is there is no longer a ‘Red List’ of countries that foreigners cannot travel from due to COVID-19. You can see which countries were affected by the previous regulation in this post.

As there is no longer a Red List, it is now possible for foreigners and Indonesian citizens to travel to Indonesia from any country. Those wanting to travel to Indonesia will need to do 5 days quarantine at a Government approved hotel. More details on who can travel to Indonesia are provided below.

To travel to Indonesia in 2022 you will need:

  1. To agree to comply with Indonesian health protocols
  2. Be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least 14 days prior to departure and have proof of vaccination in English as well as the language of the country of vaccination

  5. Proof of health or travel insurance that is valid for COVID-19 treatment with at least USD 100,000 cover

PCR testing while in Indonesia quarantine

  1. Upon arrival, travellers will take a PCR test on the first day of their quarantine
  2. Travellers will have to take a second PCR test on day 4 of their 5 day quarantine

As long as the test is negative, travellers can continue on their journey.
